Brought a 33-year-old home!

Pics!!!* It needs some TLC, but is in pretty good condition.* A few rust spots to take care of and some tuning is in order.* Seems mechanically sound though.* Good motor & tranny best I can tell. It's in need of a good bath too, but there are some rust spots around.

Someone has done a lot of work already on the interior, about the only thing that *needs* replacement is the shifter boot & the plastic tip on the choke lever.

A little bodywork & paint will go a long way too. I thought that Z didn't match the rest of the car, now I know why!

As far as the motor goes, I really think the carbs need a little work & tuning. I'm going to pull a couple spark plugs to see what's they look like. It seems to be a little rich.
